By Jennifer Chait:

Remember as a child, when your parents said don't touch the harmful poisons and chemicals under the sink? Well, that advice still makes sense. So, why do so many people think that it’s safe to put pesticides and chemicals in our food, cotton and soap? There’s something seriously wrong with this picture.

Why aren’t more people, businesses and farms aboard the organic train? Many individuals and businesses say that going organic is too hard and expensive - but is it really? I'll admit, the journey to organic living isn’t 100% stress-free. That said, can humans and the planet really afford the price we pay if we don't go organic?

Going organic is not impossible! Whether you want to transition a farm to organic, start an organic business, or simply want organic food in your lunchbox, my goal is to help you master the organic learning curve so that you, your customers and the planet can start living healthier today.
